So much Blackberries. I would recommend this over most of the crooked staves I've had.

Initial sour was decent but taste dropped off to nothing far too quickly.

Pours a decent bubbly purple head mostly clear but bright reddish ruby maroon color.

Nose brings mild Brett funk, plenty of blackberry, mild green stem and seed, but very light, faint buttery oak, an almost cranberry tartness.

Taste brings sweet fruit and tart fruit, more blackberry stem and seed, a tart cranberry like, juicy tart fruit, very light on the Brett, bitter tannic seed, lots of it, with very faint buttery oak. Finish is dry mild tannic seed, little tart fruit and blackberry, etc.

Mouth is lighter bod, very little carb, tart little flemmy.

Overall very light.

Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice almost crystal clear light purple hue with a thin white head that fades almost immediately to leave thin halo.

S - Aromas of light generic berry, faint barrel, light tartness. Very subtle and almost bland.

T - Taste is better than the nose, really faint berry notes, light funk, light barrel, some buttery oak, soft tartness that grows stronger as the beer opens.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, rather thin.

O - Overall this beer was really really light and subtle, almost too a fault. Needs more pop.

Serving type: Bottle
